Pink argues that her live performance was mistakenly brought up in conversations about the war between Israel and Hamas and has denied claims that Israeli flags were flown at her concerts. On Sunday night, the 44-year-old pop musician debunked these allegations in a “controversial” post on X (formerly Twitter).
Pink noted that even ordinary tasks like breathing might now be viewed as controversial when she acknowledged that her article would cause controversy. She recounted getting threats because some people thought she was incorrectly flying Israeli flags during her performances, which she made clear she wasn’t. As a tribute to their beauty and tradition, she has started waving Poi flags, which were first used by the Mori people of New Zealand.
Pink made it clear that, other than the rainbow flag, she doesn’t utilize flags in her performances to represent any specific causes or organizations. She expressed her sorrow for the status of the world and her prayers for everyone, reiterating her belief in peace, equality, and love.
What is going on at Pink’s concert?
Pink’s dancers’ use of blue and white “poi” flags on long poles is said to imitate the “flag poi spinning” activity seen in YouTube videos, in which people twirl colored fabric fastened to sticks. According to Billboard, Pink’s most recent social media post alludes to a particular segment of her Summer Carnival Tour, which has been going on since June.
This tour took place months before Hamas attacked Israel, which tragically claimed the lives of more than 1,300 people, including 260 concertgoers, according to the AP.
Pink’s now the first woman to headline a stadium
Early in June, the Summer Carnival tour set off for Europe, and on July 28, it arrived in North America. While on tour in August, Pink accomplished a significant feat in Milwaukee, when she made history as the first woman to perform at a stadium in the state. Pink responded by writing, “It means the world to me,” and sharing her sincere gratitude on Instagram.
Pink discussed her experiences as a rock star mother in an interview with PEOPLE in February. She recalled how after having children, some individuals expressed uncertainty, telling her that her career would be ended. How will your tour go? The successful singer continued that she didn’t foresee having a family. She has a 12-year-old daughter named Willow Sage and a 6-year-old son named Jameson Moon, both with her husband Carey Hart.
She couldn’t picture it because she thought she’d make a terrible mother. But unexpectedly, becoming a mother has been the most amazing thing she’s ever done. How responsible she has grown is amazing.
